As many of you know tomorrow is an exciting day for Marvel. 2005 is over and 2006 is looking to be a huge year with 3 theatrical films and 3 animated films from LGF. Dr. Strange is in 2007 from LGF. It's been a breakthrough year for quality video games, and the movie line up with studios and in house is promising and there is enough in the pipeline to make sure every film is done right without rush. Tomorrow is the latest earnings release and conference call. Will there be any surprises. Surely they'll talk about taking back Iron Man, Blade TV casting, the success of the Fantastic Four, and future projects. This quarter feels like it's going to be exciting and I think they may have a few surprises for us tomorrow!

Can't wait for the news, I hope to hear some cool info about FF2! Maybe some info about Elektra2 and DD2.
 
I can't wait to hear what they have to say. I'm looking forward to any news about Iron Man if any.
 
Of course they'll mention getting Iron Man back. That's huge news to investors. I would not count on DD or Elektra sequel news. The ones that interest me the most are Iron Man and the films with other studios in the waiting: Silver Surfer, Thor, Deathlok, & Luke Cage...oh and Black Widow.
 
I like the sound of a Doctor Strange movie.
 
Have they completely dropped Black Widow:confused:
 
It seems they forgot about alot of films because they added more to the list.
 
They didn't forget anything. These movies are in different stages of development. Script writers are hired. Some scripts are approved, some are thrown back for re-writes, some are given to others to re-write, some are trashed. Marvel Studios has it's own 10 films to worry about + Iron Man which will all be released over a 7 year period. They're not all coming out tomorrow. In the meantime all the old studio deals that are still in place are also in development. Black Widow is still coming. Hayter just said in the last 30 days he's about ready to go...


[font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica]
[font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica]BLACK WIDOW[/font] Comics Continuum has quotes from David Hatyter about the espionage-tinted adaptation in development at Lions Gate Films. "I just submitted the final draft of the script, and it has been received very positively," Hayter said. "We are supposed to sit down and discuss casting this week."

[/font]It's coming. There are no forgotten films but it might take much longer to make one sequel compared to another depending upon many factors including profit, dvd sales, fan reaction, etc...
 
yea,Ive been looking forward to Black window for a long time!

Not much new info then. I guess that things will pick up in the next few weeks now that Marvel has hired that guy to head their movie division though.

That's because neither movie is going to happen.

Reviews on Marvel's Third Q report and 2006 guidance ranged from "modest" to "dismal" to "shocking", sending stocks tumbling.

MARVEL STOCK TUMBLES ON POOR FINANCIAL REPORT

http://209.198.111.165/thebeat/archives/2005/11/breaking_marvel.html

As a MVL long investor, this is how I feel right at this moment...

Brighter days are ahead but I never saw this coming. Why did Marvel management buy back shares not long ago if they had any thoughts that 2006's guidance would be that poor? Someone is sandbagging or manipulating something here for some reason that escapes me.

Still, no panic here... long term Marvel will be fine.
 
In case you guys missed it Avi confirmed Hulk 2 is moving along and is happening.
 
Yes.just like he's been saying FOR THE PAST TWO GODDAMN YEARS. GO TO HELL AVI.



Oh my god.This pisses me off to no end.I've had this thing on my mind all day,and this all those bastards have to say?**** them.
 
Wah wah wah! Let's create threads whining about Marvel or some other studio rushing a film and then we'll complain when it takes to long. WTF do you want? Do you want it done right or do you want a rush job? Pick a god damn side. Hulk 1 was a great film but NOT what people were expecting. Hulk should be a 300 million film not a 130 million domestic one. The franchise is being reworked and it'll be done right or not at all. It's simple with the Fantastic Four because it made a load of money and the character effects were acceptable and could be improved gradually. With the Hulk they could do a 180 and go for a man in a suit. I say stick w/CGI but Hulk 2 will be totally different so give me a break. I see people all day whining about FF2 being rushed, X3 being rushed, everything being rushed. The you see the same people whining about how their sick of waiting for FF2...it's taking too long? Where's the set pics of X3, where's the Spiderman picks? Wah wah wah.
 
Well I really dont want a Hulk 2 but they been saying the same thing for 2 years now.And you say not to rush it,I aggree FF and Elektra were bothed rushed BUT they could atleast start working on hulk 2,personally im pissed of because I want a DD2!
 
They are working on Hulk 2. Don't you get it. They're ironing out which direction to go in, who they want to direct it, do they want CGI or Man in Suit, budget, actors, etc...They're working on it. I want them to spend as much time as they need to get it done right but Universal is also on a time crunch. They have until 2007 to get it going. That's plenty of time.
